What is A Roof Ice Dam?
An ice dam forms when snow melts–typically from warm air migrating into the attic and “heating the roof–and runs down to the eave. Since the eave does not have a heat source below it, the snow melt freezes. After cycles of this occurring, the ice gets thicker and thicker, forming a dam that will trap water behind it. The result is an alarming pooling effect which leads to leaking into walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas within your home–thus causing irreparable damage if left unchecked.
Effect of Ice Dams
Ice dams can cause moisture to enter your home and lead to mold, mildew, and overall damage to your home’s interior. If your insulation gets wet, it won’t do its job as well as it should–wasting energy resources and potentially causing more ice dams.
